Storm Chasers Powerstrokin!
Dunno if anyone is into this, but basically there is this group of people that have been trying to record video and weather data INSIDE a tornado. They have a show on The Science Channel and a couple others I think. Pretty interesting.
They have an armored "truck" called the "T.I.V." or Tornado Intercepting Vehicle.
It's based on a F450 Dually w/ a 7.3L
Just the chassis, drivetrain, engine, and dash, the rest is custom built. Thought it was cool.
